Stevens 1886-10-07


Visited Miss Somerton, Mrs Dix, William Payne, Charlotte Harris, W. Kay.

I had a long talk with Richard Gaydon this evening about the Band and his general conduct. At first he was not inclined to give up his instrument. But I told him he would be compelled to do so, as it was the property of the Band. He denied the paternity of the child that was sworn to him before the Shipston Magistrates. I gave him good advice and he seemed pleased with my conversation.
